Poland’s Adam Kownacki will be looking to erase his lone loss against Finland’s Robert Helenius this upcoming summer.
The highly anticipated rematch had to take place in March, but now the fight is being slated for May or June in New York – the same place where “The Nordic Nightmare” shockingly KO’d Kownacki last March.
Mike Coppinger has reported that the fight is basically a “done deal” and the exact venue and date will be announced in the following weeks. The biggest question mar around the fight remains the COVID-19 restrictions in New York and PBC will be looking to allow fans in the arena.
“I can’t wait for this Nordic Nightmare to be over,” Kownacki said. “He got me last time, but I’m returning to the path of destruction I started and putting the whole heavyweight division on notice. “After I knock out Helenius, I’ll be positioned for a shot at the title. It’s strap season.”
